A HEALTHY HEART

As he surveyed the site, he stepped back to ponder his findings. Love poured forth from the patient’s heart - pure love! Nothing else unusual could be found.

Heavenly Father, please purify my heart so that only the qualities which please You will be found in it. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
